Goddess For A Day – Get A Golden Glow With A Cleopatra Facial

Feel like royalty with the newest treatment at Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace. Your skin will thank you for being wrapped in 24-karat gold.

Just in time to celebrate Caesars Palace 50th Anniversary, Qua Baths & Spa has introduced the signature Cleopatra Golden Goddess Facial. Why gold? According to spa director Kristin Carpenter, gold is easily absorbed and a powerful antiaging mineral. “Gold is anti-inflammatory,” Carpenter explains. “It prevents the breakdown of collagen and repairs fatigued skin.”

In addition to the Cleopatra Facial, Qua Baths & Spa also offers a Golden Goddess Body Treatment (80 minutes), as well as a combo Golden Goddess Body Treatment + Facial (100 minutes). Qua Baths & Spa | Caesars Palace | (702) 731-7822

Not only does the Grace and Elegance Treatment at the Rio Spa & Salon feature a 24-karat gold facial, but the chic experience also includes a rose-scented body polish, a French manicure and hair updo.

Relaxation also seems to be a key factor in this results-oriented 80-minute treatment. After cleansing and exfoliating, the aesthetician uses collagen to do a facial massage. The coolness of the gold increases skin circulation and soothes tired eyes.

“To further relax the guest,” Carpenter says, “masks are put on the face, eyes, lips, neck and décolleté. Using extra collagen, a hand and arm massage is performed, followed by a 24-karat gold mask for the hands. The aesthetician then puts warm paraffin on the feet for hydration.”

Once complete, you’ll gaze in the mirror, perhaps just as Cleopatra would have, to study the results. Your skin will not only appear more firm, but also smooth and supple; those fine lines around your eyes will be hardly noticeable. But perhaps the most impressive results will be found on the neck, décolleté and hands, which will all appear more youthful. You will leave with a radiant, golden glow asking, “Can they bottle this bling?”
